The Star Wars universe is now being expanded to live-action series thanks to Lucasfilm and the new streaming platform Disney+. Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian will be the first in what we assume will be multiple shows set in a galaxy far far away, but there is a new production update on the Cassian Andor series starring Diego Luna.
Our friends over at ThatHashtagShow have revealed new production dates for the untitled Cassian Andor series. They say that filming will begin on October 28th and wrap around June 17th next year, a similar production schedule to The Mandalorian.
They failed to mention a filming location but there is a very good chance that Lucasfilm will keep shooting their live-action shows in California, like The Mandalorian, to possibly keep Pinewood Studios free for film productions.
Plot details have yet to be revealed but the series is expected to be a prequel since Andor dies in Rogue One and would allow them to potentially focus on brand new stories. The tone of the show is said to be more of an espionage series, given Cassian is a Rebellion spy that certainly would fit the character and likely a major reason why Lucasfilm hired The Americans’ Stephen Schiff to write and showrun it.
Diego Luna is set to shoot the second season of Netflix’s Narcos: Mexico before the untitled Star Wars series.
If these production dates are accurate there is a good chance “Andor” likely air in the fall of 2020 on Disney+.
